Draft Strategic Plan Goals

The draft strategic plan goals are ready for review and comment. The draft plan identifies 8 goals for the City to work on over the next 7 years to help improve our community. The goals were crafted based on the community input received over the course of many meetings and telephone survey last spring. That input is available on our Findings Report page, and all are encouraged to review the summaries. Every comment received is listed, whether it was received in the community meetings or from the telephone survey.

Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities & Threats
In addition to the community input, city staff also conducted a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) to also identify our community problems and opportunities. When combined with the themes identified from the community meetings and telephone survey, several key focus areas became very clear as to the desired improvements to the City. These are:
  • Infrastructure: roads, sidewalks, buildings, parks
  • Communication: BCTV, website, newsletters, email, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
  • Finances - transparency, debt reduction, good value on dollars spent
  • Reliable utilities: electric, water, sewer, trash collection
  • Sustainable community: energy efficient, solar energy development, recycling
  • Transportation: traffic, more bike and people trails, good roads
  • Maintain our Family Friendly community: city programs and events
Future city budgets and projects will use the strategic plan as our guide to a better community.
